Built in 1852, along the 1846 alignment of the Santa Fe Trail, this estate was owned by George Caleb Bingham, famed Missouri Civil War artist.

From 1879 to 1978, it was home to the Waggoner family, owners of the Waggoner Gates Mill. The home contains original furnishings and paintings.

In the carriage house you will see a gift shop, an old-fashioned soda fountain, an original covered wagon and a collection of Bingham reproductions. The Carriage House is available for group luncheons, meetings, weddings and private functions.

Tours are offered daily, April through October, and from the day after Thanksgiving through December 30. Group tours may be arranged year-round, by appointment. There is a calendar of events and festivals year-round; see the website for schedules and details.

Regular admission: $6; senior, child and group rates are offered.
